Biomaterials Processing Laboratory

The group (about a dozen in total) and laboratory specialises in creating smart coatings, smart fibres, bubbles, vesicles, droplets, particles and capsules using a variety of new devices/processes invented in our laboratory.

Cardiovascular Engineering Laboratory

The UCL Cardiovascular Engineering Laboratory is devoted to the development and clinical implementation of improved therapeutic solutions for cardiovascular diseases.

Fluids for Manufacturing, Energy and Health

They study a range of challenging fluid flow problems such as bluff body flows, fluid-structure interaction, haemodynamics, microfluidics and non-Newtonian flows to name a few.

Hierarchical Phase-Contrast Tomography (HiP-CT)

This project will achieve transformations in X-ray tomography technology by enabling cellular level imaging anywhere in whole organisms including human bodies, providing insight at multiple anatomical levels.

The Moazen Lab

This group focuses on the biomechanics of bones and joints, especially craniofacial systems and lower limb, aiming to understand the underlying mechanics of growth, repair and adaptation.

Biomechanical research students prepare for experiment at MUSE lab in UCL Mechanical Engineering

Multiscale Cardiovascular Engineering (MUSE)

They are a group working at the interface of cardiovascular science, mathematics and bioengineering. They apply multi-physics and multi-scale computational techniques to produce patient-specific simulations and to understand cardiovascular health and disease.
